Marie and Andrew’s City Hall wedding was pre-pandemic, so it was small but not socially distanced. What would the photos look like if I had shot it during restrictions? Definitely more masks during the cocktail hour and the ceremony. Otherwise, very similar – small group, outside photos when we can.
So, people come to plan their elopements for all sorts of reasons. Perhaps you are choosing something more flexible and small because COVID has affected your wedding plans. Or perhaps you are psyched that the pandemic has made it easier for you to explain to your family that you always wanted to elope in the first place!
Maybe you want to get married now, and plan for a party later.
That is awesome, and however you come to an elopement, know that you can have a beautiful and meaningful ceremony.
If you are planning on eloping in Minneapolis or St Paul, I have some tips to keep in mind and also some suggestions for your photography.
